Agreed home sales in Portugal rose at their fastest rate in the last five years, prices are expected to rise 2% in the next year and sales expectations reached a new high in May, according to the latest market index.
The national confidence index, a composite measure of near term price and sales expectations, jumped from +33 in April to +46 in May, a record for the RICS/Ci Portuguese Housing Market Survey (PHMS).
At the same time, agreed sales rose at the sharpest rate on record since the survey was launched in 2010 and have now improved for 15 successive months.
A new law published in the Government Gazette Tuesday will mean that as of 1 July, under-18s will be banned from purchasing all types of alcohol including wine and beer.
